Abrahadabra News

9³,

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season. The Abrahadabra Institute at this time takes a one month break from external publication and instruction to focus on internal affairs, specifically this year in order to make preparations for the March curriculum and the official book on Mutational Alchemy. By the end of January registration and orders for books will be available as the first order of business. 
      Any extremely important questions may be directed to our Discord server or by phone. This is a very busy time of year for most people, so it’s best for me to take advantage of that by getting as much work as I can finished, regarding these very important behind the scenes projects that will secure this knowledge for both current and future students, as well as make it accessible. 
      Solstice cards went out yesterday, so check your mailbox soon. 

Ultimate Guide to the Dwarven God

http://abrahadabra.com/ultimate-guide-dwarven-god-2/

These “Ultimate” articles on archetypes and godforms are designed to be flexible and expandable, so we will have our own personal library of archetypes to draw upon that is uniquely positioned for the needs of The Abrahadabra Institute’s burgeoning Mutational Alchemists or Magi. The threads are always open for discussion, so if you have questions or suggestions, feel free to reply directly to the article. 


מִצְרָ֫יִם (borderlands) of religious thought: abraham

This new series of articles is meant to attend to the concerns and thoughts of those who have religious tendencies, or, those who have to deal with religious family members on a regular basis.

The Abrahadabra Grid, The Hidden Diamond Sutra and the Doctrine of the TwinTrees: Introduction

http://abrahadabra.com/abrahadabra-grid-hidden-diamond-sutra-doctrine-twintrees-introduction/

A great little introductory article sparked by one of the math whizzes over at r/askmath, who happened to not only be able to solve one of the great mysteries of Abrahadabra, but was a learned Qabbalist himself, as it turned out after he spied Izi’s reddit history. 


We will be continuing these lectures on the Mutational Alchemy Tarot which should help lead TAI members into a complete understanding of the tarot from a very logical, thus, strong, foundation. I aim to knock out at least one of these a month, and they will be members only from here on out.

63-Year Old Tibetan Monk Self Immolates

have just confirmed that another self-immolation protest has taken place inside Tibet. Tenga, a 63 year-old monk carried out his protest on 26 November. 
      Meanwhile, earlier this month an independent think tank in the U.S. ranked Tibet the second worst country for political freedom and civil rights, just under North Korea. 

Buddhist Learning Center LarungGar Being Demolished

Human activists are in an uproar all over the world over news that China has been demolishing the Buddhist Learning Center of LarungGar, pictured below.

Shamanism

Hamilton Morris of Vice News traveled to Mexico to track down the Sonoran Desert Toad, a rare species whose venom triggers one of the most powerful trips on the planet, in a new episode of HAMILTON’S PHARMACOPEIA.

Robo Church 

A strange story from PJ Media. Apparently an ex Google Exec has created a religion that aims to create a master AI, or a god…an artificial intelligence god. 

Love Libraries?

What kind of proper occultist doesn’t? Check out the amazing new space-age styled library, the Tianjin Binhai Library that opened a few days ago. Apparently the library part of it kind of sucks, since many of the books are just painted on, and personally we think it could use a few dozen overstuffed armchairs, but it is very cool looking.

Political

youtube channels worth subcribing to: represent.us

Represent.us brings together the ideas of both the right and the left in America to create ideas that work to bring power back into the hands of voters. They understand the problem of how busy voters actually are today, and have encapsulated their ideas for solving the problems in quick 5 to 10 minute shorts. 

 

I hope everyone enjoyed a fun Samhain or at least an uneventful one. I love this time of year and believe it or not, New Mexico does have four distinct seasons, as one can see from the leaves in the garden pic below taken from the patio our half acre lot in downtown Gallup.

      I’d like to welcome our new members this past month and remind them that if they have any questions or need assistance they should e-mail me at abrahadabrainstitute@gmail.com or visit us on our public Discord chat. Remember that I need to know your username in Discord in order to greenlight you into the private members-only area. Any random person can idle invisible indefinitely in the public area until we ban them, which is why I ban usernames which seem to have run out of things to talk about.  If your name is NOT green (or blue for moderators) in Discord, you cannot see the private chatrooms and should not expect your conversation in the general chatroom (Apadana) to be private. The Discord chat is full of interesting chats, photos of TAI including our equipment and people, so it’s well worth a visit. 

Rules (Also listed in Discord)

Also a huge thank you from all of us to En Ma Kai who has been fortifying our chatroom with some major upgrades, including a superintelligent robot and some additional security measures. He understands The Abrahadabra Institute and what we are all about. While we are small, officially, we already have attracted some amazing minds to the little pocket of reality we have carved out here and I expect that to grow even more. 

The Kings and Queens of the Earth: Ayn Rand and Saul Alinsky

The second installment of the series covers two radicalists from the mid-century modern era, seemingly on polar opposite ends of the political spectrum…or are they?

The Da’ath Hack 

I was forced to re-release the Da’ath Hack article by m1thr0s, slated for inclusion in the important Abrahadabra: The Anatomy of the Body of Light 7-volume series, due to the fact that some members have no experience with any kind of banishing technique. So, might as well start them on the best, most up to date banishing method ever devised.

The Sexes: via Bigrammaton to Tetragrammaton

The Abrahadabra Institute’s take on gender studies and gender issues is definately way out there, but mathematically and logically tight in its arguments. Turns out the progressives are right about many things, but not all. 
     People have been asking me about the real gender sexes and bigrammaton for a little while now, and while all of the data is already right there in the bigrams, both ternary and binary, that will allow astute scholars to figure (at least some of) it all out; it seems I can never write enough words to assist in the task of unveiling what all of these charts and mirrors actually mean.

Building the Forums

The Alchemy section of Abrahadabra Forums is getting some content added, including high-res images of rare alchemical textbook images I have in our library, in the public domain. Check it out. 

m1thr0s’ Catalogue Raisonne

I will be opening the vault aka m1thr0s’ catalogue raisonne on November 18th at 10 PM EST on Saturday 11/18 for anyone who is wanting to purchase a copy of his work and pick from the whole catalogue. This will likely be the last time I take the time to do this before July 2018 so I suggest that you tune in or let me know you’re interested in a recording of the session. 

Pricing is standardized and deeply discounted for Abrahadabra Institute members. I will fulfill orders for desired prints/mirrors until December 20th. Other prints might become available later on but they are the only 

The review of the catalogue will take place on Twitch on my channel.

TwinStar Demonstration

A few people asked me to demonstrate the TwinStar meditation, it’s already helped one person point out errors in their technique, so I think it was worth making.

Japanese Demon Festival Terrifies Kids

After watching the video below, you might ask how this is not child abuse, but how else are future therapists going to earn a living? Kidding aside, the festival started after a mysterious “demonic” mask washed up out of the ocean. The demon is called “Paantu,” etymologically similar in structure to the Chung Kuo creation god “P’an Ku” who also has a devilish appearance as a dwarfish figure with two horns. Curiously, the Coast Salish tribes in the Pacific Northwest have similar tales corresponding to sacred masks which they are still in possession of to this day. They are sometimes referred to as the “masks that came from the ocean” as they were discovered on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest. Japanese culture and Salish culture share a lot of similarities and although no DNA research has been done it’s theorized that American Indians immigrated from Asia. Only hair from virgins is permitted to be used on the Salish masks. In 1994 I was asked by our family friend, the daughter of the chief of the Tulalip tribe to donate my long hair after deciding to go with a pixie haircut, to a mask that needed to have its hair replaced. The dance in which the masks emerge every spring is called the “Black Paint Dance” which is eerily similar to the appearance of these Japanese demons which are painted black…see the link to the Dangerous Minds article below.

Paganism


Actual Vikings think Racist pseudo-Vikings are Morons

When it comes to Odin and Thor, there isn’t much more that can lend your opinion authority than actually living in Reykjavik and speaking a language that isn’t English. The Atlantic (yes, The Atlantic) reports on Hilmar Hilmarson, a high priest of the old Nordic faith popularly called “Asatru” and qualifies as such an authority. He finds the America Asatru racists obnoxious and “horrifying.” We can’t remember a time when the nonsensical mish-mash of old Norse mythology in America was ever not full of racist idiots and nerdy doughboys who can’t research their way out of a paper bag. Iceland is preparing to revive a temple to Odin June 2018, so let’s hope their ideology will influence ugly Americans to align more closely with ancient beliefs, at least.

Shamanism

Cricket tournament competitor Dinesh Chandimal of Sri Lanka claims that Shamanism helped him beat Pakistan this week. 

Elle reports, Paris Jackson, a rising star on the fashion modelling circuit, claims she is a Shaman in training who is going to help save the Great Barrier Reef.  That’s nice dear. Meanwhile, outside of la-la land, scientists have concluded there’s only one way to save the Great Barrier Reef, and it doesn’t include flying all over the world in a fuel-guzzling jet to model clothes.

http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/03/there-s-only-one-way-save-great-barrier-reef-scientists-conclude

Another set of scientists have devised a life-support system for the reef, which will buy it some time while we get the technology we need to replace carbon emission systems.

https://www.cnet.com/news/help-mother-nature-save-the-great-barrier-reef/

Environmentalism is a major focus for Shamanism but the real solution to this entire mess is for humanity to attain to its natural inheritance as stars. Once we get into space every other sacrifice nature has made will be worth it – both in her eyes and in our future, as our survival ensures that these natural wonders can be replaced with sufficient genetic technology. The obsession with the peculiarities and intricacies of micro-managing nature is disturbing, to say the least, when man has completely let its inheritance as the embodiment of consciousness stars completely fall to the wayside. I know there are dark times to come and no one, literally no one – not even enough to justify me or The Abrahadabra Institute continuing its work –  is looking in the direction of the way out. So the future is grim and it’s likely going to just get grimmer until humans wake up to what they are. The O.T.O. has failed, the Golden Dawn has failed, and the only bright light in this world at the moment is science and technology itself. Even that is under attack by ignorant and stupid neo-luddites who could end up exacerbating the situation so dangerously that we could be facing permanent extinction. 
       The Earth knows exactly what she is doing, and why, and humans are at the heart of everything she desires for her future.

Ma’at Watch


Just from personal experience girls – never trust anyone who coats you with the whole “goddess” flattery. It never ends well. A pedophile in Spain uses fake e-mails and her gullibility to gain access to her 12 year old daughter who he then repeatedly raped in a weird tale explained by Euro Weekly News. Pending the trial he faces 11 years and the mother has lost custody. Amazingly, this time it had nothing to do with Thelema or the Illuminates of Thanateros.

Note: This is a preview version of the e-mail newsletter, sans links. If you didn’t get your copy, please notify me by phone or e-mail immediately and I’ll hook you up.

I hope this newsletter finds you all well. If you feel a cold coming down like I did this morning, I recommend you stay away from sugar, drink some echinacea tea, absolutely no Oktoberfest activities unless it’s just the sausages, and lots of zinc and vitamin C. If you can stomache it, down some Goldenseal tincture. Don’t forget your scarf and hat, it helps. 

Chaos Magick Sigil Workshop: Abrahadabra Style
This month I did an impromptu workshop on sigil magick. A video of the full event is located at the link above. It’s a private link, but it’s okay to share it amongst anyone you wish.This will be the first of a variety of ongoing workshops I will be hosting, at least once a month. If there is a topic that you are interested in, such as the MAT or something else, members are highly encouraged to notify me and I will do my best to arrange something. Call or e-mail me back.
The Kings and Queens of the Earth: Introduction
In this series we’ll be exploring some of the lesser known figures within magick, philosophy, science and politics who helps shape the Nu Aeon. Their direct connections to the 418 and 9³ currents are often missed and we will cover all of that so folks can get a better idea of just how big this aeon thing really is.
 
Textbook List for Year One
 
By request, I compiled the textbook list for Year One, with the understanding that this is fairly stable. Before the January enrollment is released there will be a lot more information available, not only on the structure of our curriculum itself, but on where to get these books cheaply and even for free, so please wait for that if you’re not keen on spending $200 on these books. 
The Periodic Table of Wizardry and Alchemy

In this article we explore the significance of the atomic weight of elements. The periodic table is absolutely a part of magick, although its significance has been completely ignored in other occult circles.

Our Life in Consciousness

This article covers some ideas surrounding Consciousness. 
729’s life files

At the request of m1thr0s I was tasked with the duty of writing his introductory biography for the Anatomy of the Body of Light, in order to aid students in discerning why he might of headed in the direction he went. Originally these were just audio notes for myself, so we’re both pretty high, candid,  relaxed, and chill throughout, sitting in our room both snuggled up together. That makes them have a different tone than most of our intentional podcasts.
      I didn’t bother editing them either, as I felt like it was both unnecessary and would clear out some of the important sentences, so you’ll have to endure interference, hearing my write on my notepad, me eating cheesepuffs for a short time and some pauses. But it’s a very candid look into our conversations and a detailed look into Magister 729’s life, even if they’re more than a little depressing. If you don’t want to hear the depressing stuff, just skip to part 003. We didn’t get a chance to finish these, which is a real shame. I am not releasing these without his permission – the audio quality was good enough that he advised me to save them anyways, for those future members who were curious enough, after his death, once we had wrapped them up. (Again we never got to finish these.)  We both thought that he might live another 10 years, even though he really did not want to, but that ended up not being the case.

This is very important – please do not redistribute these to anyone who is not a member of TAI, I’m not sure how I feel about ever doing that yet, but I doubt I will ever release them to the public. 

They are in WAV lossless format, feel free to download and store them on your own device.

m1thr0s life part 001
m1thr0s life part 002
m1thr0s life part 003
One sidenote: When I mention that “I did that with you” in part 002 when he is talking about his mother, I am referring to my mistake of projecting my feelings for m1thr0s onto several other wrong people in my life, before I met him and understood what all of the signs were trying to point me to during my life, something I will have to go into detail eventually. m1thr0s and I have a very long history together and it would take too long to lay it all out here, but what I was referring to was the relationship with Macrocosm, and the forgetfulness we experience when incarnating, since I do believe in reincarnation. 

Finally we are starting a casual League of Legends group and all are welcome to join us in this endeavor. League is a free to play game that takes anywhere from 20-30 minutes to play, so it’s perfect for busy lifestyles. As always you can usually catch us in the Discord chat room to find a match mate or talk about Abrahadabra subjects. 

The Dragon Podcast
Still working on this one, it will be released in a few days. It might actually be really really cool once it’s done – shout out to one of our members, Lugh, for the idea.

september newsletter

September 2017

While there were a few lost memberships from our July 29th launch – people who didn’t send me either their form or ID – most members have not only recieved their packets they’ve settled into the forums just fine, or our Discord chatroom: https://discord.gg/nwvyTWE
If anyone experiences any problems of any kind, they should contact us immediately at 360-688-1242, or, reply to this e-mail. Setting up a forum account is simple, if you havn’t already done so, make sure you get that taken care of now so you can access the members only material which is linked in this newsletter and so you can get support for your questions in a private, screened environment. 
For a few last minute comers: If you’re recieving this newsletter your membership has been accepted and your package will be in your inbox soon. 
A basic introduction to the inherent connection to the DNA strand within our own bodies and the I Ching, which is widely revered around the world and will form the cornerstone of your education at The Abrahadabra Institute, whether self-studying or if you decide to enroll in the curriculum. It’s pretty important stuff and this is a members only article. 
Chat archives from previous years have been placed in the archives, and are only available to members. The July 2013 chat is definately worth examining for new members and was re-released in August.
The decade long thread concerning the Magician and the Excorcist, Ningishzidda, has been revived using the latest data. Previous iterations of the thread included the one from Ye Olde Occult Forums and the old Abrahadabra Forums 1.0 thread. Feel free to join in the conversation if you have any questions about the Trans-Tigridian Snake Gods. 
This concise article written by m1thr0s over 10 years ago is still one of the best introductional series to Mutational Alchemy for beginners and has been re-released and moved to the members only area. This one includes an audio reading by Izi Ningishzidda to help fill in for the audiophile crowd. 

“The greatest power in the universe is love, and thus it is so rare. To me, spiritual ascension requires both undefiled wisdom, and the unity of true love to be complete in Baphomet” 

Mutational Alchemy Tarot Book Edit
Some major edits to the MAT book were the main focus in August. Both the web version and the printable Google Docs version were corrected, but only the Google Docs version has the changelog.
Just a little tidbit our members might find useful, taken from The Anatomy of the Body of Light, Volume I. 
Hungry Ghost month in Asia and Samhain are both coming up, and people never seem to know what to do in these situations. While this is not within the scope of our normal interests, and even might seem a little weird, it’s important that people know how to protect their space. With over a dozen questions on this topic on Reddit alone going unanswered, or, answered badly, the need for a simple guide to eliminating hauntings was deemed necessary.
Finally, if you missed it, the August apadana chat archives are here: 
If you’re interested in learning Mutational Alchemy, at the request of several hundred people, I finally have formulate a quick and easy answer to “Where should I start with Mutational Alchemy” in the Mutational Alchemy Starter Kit, for those of you who want something even shorter and sweeter, you can check out our good old I Ching Starter Kit in the Books and Media section of the store. All products come with support from yours truly.
